Expand the imagination and creativity of each student in your English class with a school tour to Stratford-upon-Avon – Shakespeare's birthplace and the home to his wife's cottage along with his mother's farm. Stratford-upon-Avon truly is a step-back in time and a walking tour will allow students to learn about how the life and history of Shakespeare has had an impact on the town itself. Our specialists can coordinate a Royal Shakespeare Theatre tour as well as workshops where teachers can decide the text the students will work on to help them understand the dialogue in a new and exciting way. The opportunity to investigate landscapes and historical contents that influenced Shakespeare’s works is an invaluable experience and this school trip will greatly benefit English studies when returning to the classroom.
